Although it’s 102 degrees in Tucson right now, Michelle and I are both taking afternoon naps wrapped in blankets and comforters.  That’s the beauty of having an air conditioner.  And you know what else helps us cope with the summer heat?  Pretending that we’re in October with a fresh baked loaf of pumpkin cinnamon swirl bread.
